Leonardo Da Vinci- the “Universal Genius”

The Renaissance gave birth to numerous artists and philosophers who have earned their place in countless history books and the minds of those born centuries following their demise. Leonardo Da Vinci was, undoubtedly, one of the most influential byproducts of the Renaissance who left behind an overwhelming amount of unique ideas, innovative inventions and beautiful art in his wake. Leonardo Da Vinci would be the historical person I wish to bring back today.

Leonardo rightfully acquired the title of “Universal Genius” with his unquenchable desire for knowledge and wisdom. He lived by his words-“the noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding”. He is revered for his technological ingenuity. He conceptualized flying machines, concentrated solar power, deadly innovative weaponry and a wide variety of machinery inspired by the world around him.

His creativity and curiosity moulded him to become an incredibly well-rounded individual that strived to not only expand his mind but also bring colour and clarity to the universe he lives in.

He left behind thousands of notebook pages filled with all kinds of observations on art, nature, space and life. He was a man clearly ahead of his time and his notebooks were a living record of a universal mind. They encompassed the experiments and ideas of this self-taught polymath, from mathematics and flying machines to astronomy and the flow of rivers.

Usually, when you hear the name of this accomplished man, the first thing you ought to think of are his magnificent paintings which are admired by many. Whether it be the subtle smile of the “Mona Lisa” or the radiating grandeur of “The Last Supper”, his careful attention-to-detail and his rich use of colors grabs the attention of anyone who views them. His priceless paintings now magnify the halls of multiple museums and art galleries around the world. Their timeless beauty rakes in visitors from every corner of the planet.

At the end of the day, Leonardo was a determined, bright revolutionary who did not let the small-mindedness of almost everyone around him hinder his creative mind. His child-like creativity, which most people lose in their youth, led him to see the world in a completely different light. If we had more people like Da Vinci today, the pointless wars will be forgotten and humanity would finally see past prejudice and indolence to become an unstoppable force that can face any issue head-on.
